quickly right now in new york and new jersey. in the aftermath of hurricane sandy drivers that can actually find an open gas station have to deal with lines that stretch for miles and miles and sometimes, when they finally get to that gas station, they run out of gas. so you've got folks sitting in those lines and you've got gas in the storage tanks and in the pipelines and in the tankers across the northeast but in many cases the company can not, for power reasons, get that gasoline distributed to the places where it needs to go. 60% of the gas stations in new jersey are closed. i also heard numbers as high as 80%. 70% of the stations in long island are closed. think about that. that's a huge percentage of the gas stations in both of these highly populated states that are not even open for business. so it is a really, really tough situation out there. for those lucky enough to get to the pump, actually paying for their gas is another concern. >> i just spent $30,000 getting my home repaired and it is all gone. >> we have nothing. no credit cards. nothing in our bank accounts. $15

in this election, certainly the convention in tampa and then sandy. it's easy to measure the impact but among the voters that decided last night and in the last seven days barack obama actually won a majority which is a huge surprise to political scientists around the country who will tell you when you have an incumbent challenger the challenger picks up the majority of the last voters and the so-called undecided voters. in this case they broke for the incumbent and sandy probably had something to do with that. so i think it is a matter of policy. it's a matter of outreach that includes people speaking for the republican party and a matter of tone making people feel that this is not just an inclusive party, these policies are inclusive and the way to create more jobs and never can be for everybody is to have the policies that were enunciated in the plan that met on the lead out and we were not successful getting it to that level. >> do you think the comments by the senatorial candidates todd akin and richard more mattered in the polling that use all for the republicans brought the? >> yes. ag

number that was interesting to me. hurricane sandy, fully 42% of those responding to this first round in the exit polling said it was important, it was a reason, one of the reasons for their vote. that's more than one might have thought hurricane sandy didn't effect 42% of the country. those people are going by and large for obama pretty big. the question then arises, okay, well how many people were for him anyway? we don't know. it's sort of interesting. what it tells us, we can't tell. exit polls can only tell you so much. it's interesting. >> megyn: we have been talking about how these exit polls are not necessarily to be trusted entirely. it would be helpful if we explain that a little bit. brit, you were on the air back in 2004 when we got information in and back then they were saying that john kerry was way ahead, he was way ahead. >> brit: he was winning virginia and all these places. people are, we had the meeting with our decision team which i can thought then and think now is the best in the business. they were looking over the exit poll data and our pollster then said the u
. in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, congress can't ignore the near bankrupt flood insurance program. while we fix the short-term problems, however, let's make it more effective, efficient and actuarially sound so that it will spare lives, property and the federal treasury. overhauling the flood insurance program would solve the most immediate challenges caused by extreme weather events likely due to global warming. we may even be able to discuss climate change in a more thoughtful and rational way. based on work i've done in the past with congressman ryan and jeff flake, i know agriculture reform is a ripe opportunity. taxpayers cannot afford to lavish unnecessary subsidies on large agri business while harming the environment and shortchanging small farmers and ranchers. surely, tea party republicans and members of the progressive caucus can come together to improve nutrition, wildlife habitat, hunting and fishing while strengthening family farms. and since big bird dodged a bullet during the presidential campaign, maybe it's time to address the vital role that the federal support for public broa
, it froze the race. there has not been a lot of movement. the media has been focused on sandy and less on the presidential campaign. second of all, think it's going to affect, it can affect turnout but most places like new jersey and new york. i'm not sure it's going to have an effect. on the other hand the president is getting good marks and governor chris christie, keeps bragging what a great job doing that. it can't hurt the president with that happening. maybe he gains a point on approval but it's way to early to know. in key places like ohio, i'm not sure it's going to have an effect. >> greta: and in terms of support to the state, those people are hurting and that is his job. >> he has his race of his own a year from now. new jersey happens in the odd year. corey booker the mayor of new york. >> now that he is chummy with the governor? >> i think politics -- i mean everything is political. i think you have a right, chris christie is doing what is the right for the state of new jersey. so is the president. but in the background of all that there are some ramifications. i'm not sur
with hurricane sandy and he was praised for that. why did he decide to go campaigning in las vegas hours after four americans were killed in benghazi in a terror attack? >> as i said, immediately, when word of the attack came the president was meeting with the top national security folks and talking with them well into the night and in touch with them during the next day there is no question is he was focused on this. >>chris: why did he feel he could campaign hours after a terror attack? >> everything was put in motion that he could put in motion every conversation that needed to be had was being had between him and his top national security officials. now, states solid or leaning obama we have in blue with 201 electoral votes and leaning romney in red with 191 votes and 11 toss up states with 146 votes and romney is in pennsylvania today where the polls have him counsel -- down four points but their campaign says he has a real shot. >> they understand they are in deep trouble. they is tried to expand the map because they know in a state like ohio where they have to win, no republican has eve

seeing tapering off. the week before hurricane sandy. lot of people say sandy killed him. i think it was more icing on the cake. but he really did engage a bunch of voters that had not been paying attention. it really put the race in play, but not quite enough. i will talk about but more and a couple minutes. the simplest thing, how we looked at it. in the senate, we saw a couple of outstanding races, but what seems to happen is there were 10 tossup races and become a down to, what is it? montana and north dakota? if they both go democratic -- if they both go republican it will have won seven out of 10. it goes to reinforce something that we already knew. when you get down to that last group of tossups senate races, they never break down the middle. they tend to break even, two- thirds one way, one-third of the other. it is whatever the gust of wind is. it could have been sandy related, maybe not. what ever happened, the use of them break either seven out of 10 or nine out of 10 in favor of republicans. it held up enormously. this, i think their team had a far better night than an
view, katrina, you saw it, sandy give some impetus to dealing with climate change. i said, in new york, we will pay for climate change one way or another. we can pay for it after each natural disaster -- in new york, we have had three or 4100-year disasters -- or four 100-year disasters. irene, sandy. it will give some impetus to deal with climate change. even if we cannot reach compromise on that, there are lots of things that we can reach compromise on and that would be on the agenda. the fourth thing i put on the agenda, i talked about earlier in reference to your question. maybe we can get some real financial reform. republicans are beginning to rethink super pacs. they have not produced the positive results they hope for and they have produced negative results that they did not expect. >> if a deal is reached before the end of the year, does that remove the need for tax reform, more comprehensive tax reform next year? >> my view is that corporate tax reform should be treated separately. why? to make corporate tax reform work, you should not have revenue increases. you are putting
failure to abide by the rules. i want to make it abundantly clear we are in the same situation. sandy and i was a "profile in courage" almost to support china and we have consistently supported our position as most people are supporting the committee's position and the congress position as relates to allowing russia to assume the responsibilities of joining the w.t.o.. and while we have no guarantees that she will abide by the rules, at least we do have she recognizes that they are international rules. and for those people that are just monitoring the behavior of the people's republic of china, we have to realize that in order to get people to cooperate and to find some discipline in international trade, they have to join. and this goes a long way in making certain that only that we create the jobs and improve commercial trade with russia, but also it encourages the administration now to see what works for the great united states, what really works improve the quality of trade between all nations, and gives us another tool to work with. so i want to thank sandy and the chairman of the
saw superstorm san joaquin smash into -- sandy smash into new jersey and new york with devastating results. loss of life, incredible loss of property, both public and private, and a very, very big cleanup bill. joining me in a little while will be some of our representatives from the state of new york. and they'll talk about that in detail. but before sandy ever hit the coast there was a need here in america to protect americans from storms and floods. we know what happens when the protection wasn't there. devastating results. today in the news in california, northern california , there is on the headlines a series of storms coming into northern california, into my district, into where my home is, and the word is, get ready for serious flooding. i mean, this is very early in the season. although californians with any memory at all will know that there are a series of infamous christmas floods in northern california. now, this is really a thanksgiving flood potential. but nonetheless it's there. and i will tell you clearly that the sacramento region, which is the second most risky r

and worse wildfires. two weeks ago hurricane sandy brought a powerful and tragic reminder that the combination of sea level rise and more powerful storms can be deadly, devastating and extremely costly. hurricane sandy was the only -- only the latest and most dramatic in a series of extreme weather events. over the past two years we've had recordbreaking temperatures , the worst drought in 50 years , major floods, numerous tornadoes and thunderstorms and vast wildfires. this is what global warming looks like. and if we continue to ignore it it will soon look far worse. we should be doing all we can to reduce carbon pollution and slow global warming. but this bill instead tries to stop efforts to reduce carbon pollution. specifically the bill targets the european union's requirement that airlines modestly reduce their carbon pollution. aviation is a significant and fast-growing source of carbon pollution and talks on an international agreement to control this pollution have languished for over a decade. so since nothing was happening for 10 years, the european union acted t
saw what we did what hurricane sandy. we can do this with the hurricane in the fiscal cliff coming if only we can get it up to a vote in the house. that may not happen and it may be that they cannot reach a deal on this plan because there is no procedural way to get a vote that would guarantee a few months down the road that you would actually need those targets. frankly finding a tax reform plan that raises a trillion dollars in revenue is far trickier than the 1986 tax reform that cut rates, broaden the base and eliminate the deduction but was revenue neutral, i was tough enough. but if they can manage to find that we may see that dynamic emerge let me make two other quick points. he was a loser and a winner on tuesday night. a winner because he won his house seat, a loser for the obvious reason but also for a couple of additional ones. it's kind of embarrassing when you are put on the ticket and you can't carry your own state. but also his percentage in his district went down significantly. at the same time, there was no question that paul ryan, who was a national figure but far
